    Hyundai Google Glass App Being Developed

    Hyundai Google Glass App Being Developed

    Google Glass, the internet search giant’s much hyped wearable gadget, is expected to go public later this year. Up till now the company has only offered it on an invitation-only basis. A public release is expected around April 2014, but nothing has been confirmed as yet. Analysts believe that the device may go big, some have gone so far as to call it the next iPhone. Apps will define how Google Glass makes itself useful in our daily lives and Hyundai is working on one that’s bound to make life easier for owners of its 2015 Genesis sedan.

    Hyundai has announced that a number of its next generation cars will be compatible with Google Glass through an app that will be released alongside the 2015 Genesis. The app will let owners locate their vehicle, start it, lock or unlock its doors and send addresses to the navigation system all through Google Glass. Moreover, it will also push notifications to the headset in order to alert users that maintenance on the vehicle is due. An executive director at Hyundai, Barry Ratzlaff, says that wearable devices are a great way to “extend the experience” outside vehicles and that they allow the company to deliver timely vehicle information straight to the owner. Now wouldn’t it be cool to start a car through Google Glass?

    Google Glass Price Expected To Be $600

    Google Glass Price Expected To Be $600

    There has been a lot of speculation about Google Glass and when the company is finally going to open it up to the public. The first wave of Glass units were offered for sale to select “Explorers.” Over the past year Google gradually opened up its Explorer program to more and more people. Earlier this week the company allowed Google Play Music All Access subscribers to purchase Glass, a sign that its gearing for a public launch. It is expected that Google Glass might be launched for the public in April 2014, and that it may be priced at $600.

    There’s no doubt in the fact that Google can’t charge for Glass what it requires Explorers to pay for their units, $1,500. The average consumer is probably not going to want to pay an exuberant amount for a smart glass, despite the fact that it is probably one of the most hyped wearable device out there. The price of Google’s wearable device has been debated a lot, some believe it is imperative for the company to keep it under $500 if it wants to attract the average consumer. Robert Scoble hears that its more likely for Glass to be priced around $600, what effect that would have on prospective buyers, only time will tell.

    Unofficial Google Glass Prescription Lenses Expected To Cost $99

    Unofficial Google Glass Prescription Lenses Expected To Cost $99

    Google has confirmed that its much hyped wearable device, Google Glass, will receive prescription lenses. Last year the company released an updated model of its wearable device that supports prescription lenses, but so far Google hasn’t said when its going to launch said lenses. On the other hand Rochester Optical announced last year that it has made prescription lenses for Glass and that it would begin selling them in early 2014. The company is rumored to be releasing its lenses soon and they’re expected to cost as low as $99.

    It should be kept in mind that Rochester Optical is not partnering with Google on prescription lenses for Glass. A spokesman for the internet search giant as also reiterated the same, there is no relationship between Google and Rochester Optical at this point in time. The prescription lenses come at a time when Google is slowly opening up its Glass program. Day before yesterday it rolled out invitations to Play Music All Access subscribers, an indicator that its gearing up for a public release later this year. Users who don’t have perfect vision may find it hard to use Glass, given that its display is essentially like a 25 inch high definition display viewed from eight feet away. It is said that Rochester Optical’s prescription lenses will simply clip on Google Glass the way its active shades and clear shield do. No confirmed release date has been rumored as of now.

    Google Glass Invites Going Out To Play Music All Access Subscribers

    Google Glass Invites Going Out To Play Music All Access Subscribers

    Wearable devices are all the rage these days and there’s one device that has managed to generate a lot of hype. Google Glass, the internet search giant’s wearable device, is currently in an invite-only phase where people who wish to purchase a unit have to first receive an invite for the “Explorer” program. Initially only a limited number of invites were sent out but throughout the year Google has ramped up production of units and has opened up the program to new Explorers. A wave of customers will be joining the program soon as Google Glass invites are now going out to Google Play Music All Access subscribers.

    The move comes after Google Play Music was released for Google Glass, allowing users to listen to their favorite music using either the bone transducer in the unit or the optional earbuds. A few weeks back Google also allowed existing Explorers to invite up to three friends to the program who would then have to purchase their own units. The company is certainly bringing more people on board the Glass project as it looks towards a public release in 2014. If you are one of the lucky Play Music All Access subscribers to receive an invite, bear in mind that you will have to shell out $1,500 plus tax for a unit and will need to be a U.S. resident in order to purchase it.
